SRINAGAR: As was anticipated, the police have finally arrested the domestic help of a lawyer who was killed when he was alone at his Jammu residence. Reyaz Ahmad Buchh, husband of former Chief Engineer, Shehnaz Goni, was killed on February 24.
Taking help from the police in Delhi, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh, the Jammu police have arrested two non-locals – Deepak Chouhan, 26, and Sunil Kohli, 30. From their possession, the police recovered the lawyer’s car and golden and silver jewellery worth more than Rs 10 lakh, reports said. The arrest took place in Chhattisgarh.
Chouhan, police sources said, was working with the old couple as a domestic help at their Greater Kailash residence. Finding Buchh alone, he conspired with a friend, Kohli. Buchh’s wife had flown to the USA for a relative’s marriage and her son was in Goa. Their daughter was with her husband in Jammu. This situation was exploited by the domestic help who murdered the lawyer and took away their car and the moveable assets mostly jewellery.
